After Rana foils Satellizer’s attempt to get intimate with Kazuya, the two girls agree to ally against Ouka as a love rival. Meanwhile, Ouka Tenjouin trains against a Type-S Dummy Nova, activating her Plasma Textures that allow her to withstand the Nova's whips unharmed. After the brief exercise, she recalls a conversation with Gengo Aoi about the Valkyries being potentially stronger than the Pandora with the Plasma Textures, but she wonders why Gengo did not give this technology to the Valkyries. The next day, Atsuko Seiga of Seiga Industries arrives with Faylan Generators, which power not only the Valkyrie’s Plasma Weapons but also the dummy Novas to be used in upcoming the training exercise between West Genetics and Platoon 13.
Since the Charles Bonaparte's attack on Attia Simmons, Platoon 13 has been receiving backlash from the envious student body.

Lucy comes down to Kazuya's level and after she stares at him awkwardly, she tells Kazuya is her "sister" along with Kazuha, Chiffon, and three other unknown women: Cassandra, Windy May, and Teslad. Kazuya fails to understand Lucy or her explanation about the true purpose of the Nova, leading Lucy to transfer a multitude of memories about Maria Lancelot and the Nova into Kazuya by kissing him.
